Default Backup Camera not working

baruistas,

I have a 2011 Outback with backup camera, purchased in USA, but now living in Canada. Backup camera not working and local deal couldn't troubleshoot a solution in the time they had my car.

I read and tried the solutions posted in this thread:
http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/...t-working.html

But power on / off not my problem -- tried numerous times to power on/off and didn't say 'fixed' for long.

Symptoms: Occasionally get 1) it working properly; or 2) get blue screen with the grid outlined temporarily while in reverse, but no image; or 3) simply no blue screen or image (lately). Coincidentally and possibly related -- seemed to go on the funk during recent wet weather period but that could just be spurious coincidence.

Anybody have this problem and could share what caused / solved it? Will bring the car in again to get it better diagnosed, but surprised local dealer seemed clued out first time around. Seems that the backup camera not a common option here where I get my car maintained.

Had the same symptoms that you mentioned and it turned out to be the camera itself, I fitted a new one and all was well. Hope this helps.
